Client: Settlers Motel Turangi

Improving user experience for a motel website

Settlers Motel Turangi offers quiet, affordable accommodation in a park-like setting near the Turangi town centre.

Donna, who runs the motel, was not happy with the service from the company that designed her website and provided web and email hosting.

Donna wanted to work with someone that she could trust and who was responsive and easy to communicate with.

Reliable Web and Email Hosting

Donna wanted to leave the old agency as soon as possible because they had become uncommunicative and weren’t replying to emails. The existing website was transferred to Windrush Design’s server until the redesigned website was ready to go. Email accounts were set up and the domain name was configured to point at the new server.

Content Management System (CMS)

Directus was chosen to manage the content. This made it possible to design a custom website, while providing Donna with access to a simple CMS.

“Working with Mike was very easy. He made the process of a new website just so simple and stress free, and he is very professional in all aspects. He is happy to help with future improvements and handled training in person.”
